1. American Coach Eagle 45K Class A Motorhome
The Eagle series from American Coach is built with only premium materials and the latest in technological improvement.
This luxury class A coach is built on a Freightliner chassis with a 60-degree wheel cut and independent front suspension. Those features make it super easy to operate in spite of its 45’ exterior length.
Inside, it boasts a hydronic heating system for the colder months and three 15,000 BTU air conditioning units for keeping you cool.
It also includes a reliable 12,500 kW Cummins Onan Quiet Diesel generator and an optional electric fireplace in the master bedroom.
Parking and setting up this luxury Class A motorhome will provide you with little in the way of hiccups.
It’s equipped with a 10-inch touchscreen back-up monitor and automatic leveling hydraulic jacks.
Once you’re set-up, you’ll love relaxing under one of your two electric patio awnings as you tune into your favorite sports or television programs on the 50” LED TV that’s part of this RV’s beautiful exterior entertainment system.
2. Winnebago Horizon 42Q Class A Luxury Diesel Motorhome
The Winnebago Horizon 42Q is a diesel motorhome manufactured by one of the leading names in RV construction quality.
If you’ve ever done any RV shopping in the past, the odds are pretty good that you’ve already heard the Winnebago name at least once.
Their Horizon 42Q floorplan provides you with an exceptional amount of interior living space because it has a total of your slide-out.
Dual slide-outs in the master bedroom will help you feel supremely comfortable getting ready for bed each night without knocking elbows with your travel partner.
The entire kitchen, pantry, and dining area slide out so that you can cook delicious and healthy camping meals without the hassle.
Opposite that area, the lounge and sofa area also slides out to maximize the living room space.
And this motorhome boasts nothing but sliding doors, which means no awkward hallway encounters when someone unexpectedly exits the bedroom or bathroom.
3. Forest River Berkshire XLT 45CA Class A Motorhome
If you’re looking for a luxury class A motorhome that has enough space for more than one couple, the Forest River Berkshire XLT 45CA is an attractive option.
It’s the rare RV that actually has two bathrooms so that guests (or kids!) don’t have to use the same bathroom as you.
That would be weird anyway because the floorplan of this coach would require guests to walk through your bedroom in order to get to your bathroom.
So it’s nice that there’s two, and we also love that the master bathroom includes two drop-in sinks for his-and-hers convenience.
The Berkshire is a diesel motorhome with independent front suspension and a more attractive price point than some of the other luxury Class A coaches on our list.
The only problem with this RV is that you might have trouble choosing which television to watch when you want to relax and enjoy your favorite streaming movies or shows. It has a total of six TVs if you include the exterior entertainment center.
4. Tiffin Phaeton 44 OH Class A diesel Motorhome
The Tiffin Phaeton motorhome is another diesel pusher and the 44 OH luxury Class A floorplan includes a total of four slide-outs.
In terms of temperature control, the one-piece roof cap on this rig provides better insulation so that the hydronic heating system and air conditioning units don’t have to work as hard to do their respective jobs.
The master bedroom in this motor coach features a walk-in closet with enough space for the optional washer/dryer.
It comes with a standard queen-sized bed, but you’ll have the option of upgrading to a king if you like.
And you can also choose to upgrade this floorplan to include a rear egress exit for private access to your bedroom from the outside of the rig.
You’ll also be able to customize your living area according to your preferences. On one side, you can choose a sofa bed, dual leather recliners, theater seating, or an L-shaped sofa.
On the other, you’ll have the option to choose a booth dinette, a dinette with workstation, a U-shaped dinette, a leather sofa with a lifted TV, or a single leather recliner with lifted TV.
5. Newmar King Aire 4553 Luxury Diesel Motorhome
The Newmar King Aire 4553 makes driving a rig that’s nearly 45 feet long much easier than you’d believe.
It’s equipped with Newmar’s Comfort Drive adapted steering and Connected Diagnostics keep you up-to-date with any maintenance needs for this RV’s Cummins diesel engine.
Speaking of that engine, this motorhome is rated to tow up to 20,000 pounds and you’ll have the option of adding a Curt Spectrum trailer-brake controller to give you more towing control.
The rig’s smart sensors also provide you with an advanced collision avoidance system that makes it one of the safest RVs on the market.
The three slide-outs on this luxury Class A floorplan help to vastly increase the amount of living space you can enjoy once you’re parked.
There’s a nearly full-length slide out on the driver’s side where your couch, dinette, refrigerator, pantry, and bedroom entertainment center are located.
On the opposite side, two more slide-outs provide extra space in your bedroom and kitchen areas, respectively.
6. Thor Motor Coach Tuscany 45MX Class A Diesel Motorhomes
Newell makes its own custom chassis for this luxury Class A RV, but it does rely on the power of a Cummins X15 diesel engine.
You’ll be able to enjoy keyless entry once you’re parked in a campground so that you don’t have to worry about bringing keys on hikes, paddles, bike rides, or any other recreational pursuit.
It’s also hard to even feel like you’re in a motorhome when you enter this Newell coach because of the many residential appliances it features.
You’ll have all the luxuries of a dishwasher, washer/dryer, garbage disposal, and a grand total of four roof-mounted air conditioning units.
In terms of power, it also includes a huge 20-kilowatt generator when you’re off-the-grid.
Inside this motorcoach, the master bedroom features a junior king bed and an Optima projector for your entertainment purposes.
There’s a half-bathroom just across from the refrigerator/freezer combo and tile flooring throughout give it a truly polished, luxurious feel from the instant you step foot inside.
7. Thor Motor Coach Tuscany 45MX
If you’re looking for a luxury motorcoach at a more affordable price (relatively!), then take a harder look at the Thor Motor Coach Tuscany 45MX.
One of our favorite features is this rig’s 200-watt solar charging system that trickle charges your coach batteries so that you can spend more time camping off-the-grid.
In terms of power, the Cummins ISL diesel engine in this RV provides 1,250 pounds of torque and gives it a maximum towing capacity of 15,000 pounds.
It’s also equipped with a 10-kilowatt Onan diesel generator that’s inserted on a manual slide-out, which makes it much easier to pull out for general maintenance.
Inside, the kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances and a residential, drawer-style dishwasher.
A total of three slide-outs provide exceptional interior living space and a drop-down bunk over the cab provides additional sleeping space for guests or family members.
8. Foretravel Presidential Realm LVB (with Spa!)
Yes, you read that correctly! What’s better than a luxury Class A motorhome without a spa? Well, one that has one of course. And, no, we’re not joking about this luxury amenity.
The master bath includes a Kohler Underscore Spa bathtub that gives you a place to relax and soak your bones after a full day of outdoor recreation.
Once you’re ready for bed, you’ll be able to enjoy the spacious comfort of a motorized king bed. This bed tilts up to give you a better viewing angle for your favorite shows.
And your guests can choose from two fixed bunks with independent TVs or a full-size air bed in the living room, where there’s also a 4K LED Smart TV for entertainment purposes.
The Spartan K4 chassis that the Presidential motorcoach is built on includes less camber than previous Spartan chassis designs and also features improved pass-through storage.
For your power needs, this RV includes a 320-watt solar panel package and a 12.5-kilowatt Onan diesel generator.
For our money, we’d always choose a Class A RV if you’re going to be living in it full-time.
But even if you only travel in your rig a few times a year, these RVs are as close as you’ll come to having a residential home on wheels.
If you want to travel the country by roadway but you’re not willing to sacrifice the comforts of your current residence, these luxury Class A motorhomes are perfect for you.
And we wish you nothing but the best of luck finding and purchasing the perfect RV for all your future adventures!
